PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - The Multnomah County Sheriff’s says a Wilsonville man has been charged in connection with the stabbing of three men at a large dance party on Government Island.

Brandon Richard Cullen was charged with three counts of first-degree felony assault. Cullen’s bail has been set a $750,000.

Emergency personnel responded to the island Saturday at about 1:45 a.m. on a report of a fight in progress.

Rescuers located three victims with multiple stabbing wounds in a crowd of nearly 1000 people partying to a DJ. The victims were transported off the island by boat and taken to an area hospital.

One of the victims sustained serious injuries; the other two are considered in stable condition.

Government Island belongs to the Port of Portland, but is run by the state parks department.
